Why so serious? The Crayola-bright red lip at Marc by Marc Jacobs — which was pared with very minimal makeup — was meant to look cartoon-ish.
Big, voluminous bouffants topped off with a dainty black headband — this look is a dramatic (and very cool) twist on a classic coiffure.
The models' eyes were mesmerizing thanks to a mix of metallic blue and brown eyeshadows that was inspired by birds of paradise.
The inspiration for the cool, easy hair at rag & bone was "Patti Smith goes to India," according to Redken's Guido Palau. A little bit dread-y and a lot bed head-y, we can't wait to try this wavy style. As for the makeup, Revlon's Gucci Westman put emphasis on the eyes, making the black eyeliner bold and a bit rough around the edges.
Every season, the Alexander Wang girl is enviably effortless, and Fall 2012 is no exception. Redken's Guido Palau wanted to contrast the hard-edged collection with very simple, very clean hair with a center part. Diane Kendal for MAC perfected the minimal, androgynous look with a strong, straight-across brow and a bare lip.
Jason Wu went "warrior woman" for fall, and the severe ponytail wrapped in black bondage tape perfectly portrays that feeling of strength. A dark military green eyeshadow completed the bold beauty look.
